Around 146 pcs and around 100 years old and does not look like it was used. My wife got it from her grandmother when we got married in 1956 and it was packed away when she died.
My wifes grandmother owned in before. She died in1952 and it had been packed up and was to be given to us when we got marries in 1956. It was put in a china cabinet and we did not use it and it does not look like it was used ever.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
We often ask for - and prepare - a more carefully itemized listing as large service pieces will bring more than smaller pieces; without that, the value is a bit broader than typical. If you can provide an itemized listing detailing which / how many pieces you have, I can update this further but this should give you an idea of what the set is worth at auction.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:
An antique 146-piece Noritake parcel gilt part dinner service
Chaumont pattern, made in Japan, bearing Morimura 'M' mark in use from 1911-1921
With single gilt detailing, marked underneath, comprising plates, bowls, cups, saucers and service pieces.
CONDITION: client reports this has been packed away and may never have been used.
PROVENANCE: inherited from aunt, as a wedding gift in 1956
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.
